So I Tried The Beaded Bezel Tutorial

On Sunday, my husband, and kids were going to be out of the house, for an extended period of time. I figured this was a great time to try the beaded bezel tutorial, I shared in a previous post. First let me say, if I ever say beading looks easy, please slap me. I spent the first two hours, just mastering the first three rows, ugh. Of course some of that time was spent watching the video a few times. Once it clicked what the first three rows were supposed to look like, I got it. Ha then came the rest of it. Now I did finish it, but it is way too ugly to share LOL. I did learn a few things, however.

1- I have a disability for following directions. I think I have mentioned that before. Had I followed the directions, it might have come out better.

2- I think I can modify the directions, to suit my inability to follow the directions supplied to me.

3- There must be an easier way to accomplish the same goal.

4- I will be messing around with some different ideas rolling around in my very active head, to see if I can come up with something less complicated. I am not so sure of this, but I can dream.

In conclusion, I will be doing this pattern again, and again, until I get it right. I would love some words of encouragement from all of you experts out there.

Well I am no expert and I am instruction challenged too. But I am sure with a little practice you will be whipping through it and using it in your pretty jewelry.

Thank you, Laura, I am glad I am not the only one with direction inabilities. I will not give up, I am determined.
